Open cooling towers

Open cooling towers discharge heat from water-cooled systems into the atmosphere. The hot process water is distributed over a fill pack (heat transfer media) to interface with air blown by a fan through the cooling tower. During this evaporative cooling, a small part of the water evaporates while cooling the remaining process water.

The key benefits of open cooling towers are:

  • optimal cooling, as proved by lab tests
  • allowing low process temperatures
  • open cooling towers have a small footprint

A benefit for all BAC cooling tower customers:

Baltimore Aircoil has various open cooling tower configurations, the specific benefits of which are listed below.
